After installing upgraded turbochargers from www.timsturbos.com, we're back on the chassis dynamometer to retune for the new power.
The car currently holds a SCTA Record at Bonneville for Altered Coupes running 500" or greater, forced induction engines: 241mph. It only needs another 5mph to qualify for entry into the 200mph Club at Bonneville, which is a difficult accomplishment.
Thus, We added exactly 100hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels, this time carrying it all the way to 7000RPM.
This is a 515 cubic inch Merlin Big Block chevy. Megasquirt EFI with 150lb/hr injectors, a pair of modified GT38 turbochargers, external wastegates, custom air-to-water Intercooler.
This car is built for landspeed racing.

1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk Jet Streak Road Test
Take a test drive with me in a 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk with the Jet Streak engine option that was contemplated, but never offered by the factory.
I was reluctant to make this because at the time I was riding on 22 year old radial tires that made a severe thump the faster I went. A month later I replaced the tires. When I took off the front passenger side tire, I noticed a split of about 18", right down the tread.
Upgrade Complete. 2366 Horsepower Dyno Pull
We recently completed the upgrade on Al's Engine from the previous F2 ProCharger, to an F-R-139 and changed the EFI system, to a more advanced and user-friendly Big Stuff 3 System.
Special thanks to Patrick Barnhill of PTP for always going above and beyond. We are ever grateful for you tuning expertise and willingness to help in our Big Stuff 3 endeavors.
Also a very special thanks to Mr. Al Fink, we look forward to hearing your racing stories with this beast.
